H&M Grand Opening at Marquee Mall

Finally, the much awaited H&M store opened at Marquee Mall here in Pampanga. The grand opening was held last Thursday, May 26 where I was invited by Miss Dani, the Marketing Associate Manager of Ayala Malls together with some blogger friends to cover the event and I was surprised to see the line of the first 500 who wants to avail the great offers. 

Gift cards were handed out to the first 300 in line - P5,000 Gift Card for the first, P2,500 Gift Cards each for the second and third, and varying amounts ranging from P300 to P2,000 each for the rest. The next 300 will walk away with special H&M umbrellas and tote bags.

I wasn't able to shop because I just can't find items which I like. Maybe after I gave birth, I'll go back and check on items for my post pregnancy outfit. See you there then!

Tio Julian's Entrante Launch Event

If you want to experience a truly elevated dining experience, you should check out Tio Julian's Restaurant located at San Fernando, Pampanga. Recently, I've been craving for some paella but since my hubby doesn't have time off from work and my big belly just won't allow me to venture into restaurants alone, I went to check on some of my notes which I got from Tio Julian Entrante when they invited us bloggers during their launch, to check if they cater to go orders and yes they do. They entertain customers dining in, ordering to go, catering and they're also open as an events place. By the way, I owe Tio Julian an article last year when I attended their event so let me blog about them before getting my order. :)

One of my blogger friend told me that Tio Julian's Restaurant's Paella ni Elena was hailed as the best paella in town and they still stand with their decision until now.

Sadly I wasn't able to try their Paella but they provide great quality food on their lineup during the launch.  

 Appetizers were served while we're waiting for the program to start.

I especially like the ambiance of the place a sit looks like a first class restaurant but their line  of food was affordable. The program started with a little introduction by Sir Jonas Manahan, the owner of the restaurant.

French Onion Soup
Meschu of Greens Salad and Seared Scallop with Strawberry and Basil Vinaigrette
Pan Seared Norwegian Salmon with Angel Hair Pasta, Bacon, Tomatoes, Olives and Fresh Herbs
Rack of Lamb with Bordelaise Sauce and Mint Jelly on Potato Mash, Caramelized French Beans and Carrots
Nena's Delight
I admit that I had difficulty in posting this event because I lost my photos and fortunately they're recovered so I want to extend my apologies to Tio Julian and Sir Jorge. I also have problems with my blog and I'm thinking of shifting to a different layout this time so that it would be faster in dealing with blog posts. Nevertheless, I'm inviting you all to try Tio Julian which is located at Km 72 MacArthur, San Isidro, San Fernando, Pampanga. I'm sure you'll be delighted with the food and place. They're also open for events and such!

Resto Name: TIO JULIAN'S ENTRANTE Catering
Address: Km. 72 McArthur Highway, San Isidro, San Fernando, Pampanga
Type of Food: Restaurant and Catering
WIFI: Haven't tried their WIFI when I visited the place. Sorry! :(

Hershoppe Soft Opening in San Fernando

Last May 6, Hershoppe officially opened it's concept store located at San Agustin, City of San Fernando, Pampanga. It's really near in our current place right now and I can even just walk to reach the place. Me and my new blogger friend Gellie received an invite to visit the place and they give us the chance to pick  any item worth of 500 and I even got a loose clothing for pregnant woman there.

The shop has two floors in which each online store has their own area. The product ranges from clothes to caps, bags, beauty products and a lot more. I can't even remember how many times I need to tour up and down the place. There's just too many to choose from.

What I love about concept store like Hershoppe is that you can shop all the way and choose your complete outfit in one place. There are also added bonuses like beauty products and gift items you can buy in one go. 

Watch out for the grand opening of their shop on June 5, Sunday at 4pm. Shop + Eat + Shot + Jam = SUPER FUN! Share the good news to all Kapampangans out there! See you!
